MG RX-75 Gun Tank English Color Guide

Master Grade RX-75 Gun Tank English Translation of Color Guide

Didn't really like the design of the RX-75 Gun Tank in the original Mobile Suit Gundam till I saw the MS08th Team and the MS IGLOO 2 The Gravity Front anime series. I guess its really right what they say that if you have no history with an item/person they don't really mean anything to you. After watching both animes and seeing the significant and heroic parts they played in the Mobile Suit Gundam shows I understand now why it endeared itself to the fans and made itself worthy enough for Bandai to make it into a Master Grade kit. The kit was released last September 2009. English Translation of the Manual of the Gun Tank can be found here

Haven't really watched the first Mobile Suit Gundam series yet but in that anime the Gun Tank was piloted by Hayato Kobayashi and Ryu Jose.

Color Guide was translated to English from the Manual posted at Dalong. More model kit color guides can be found here.
